Phil’ Charity Concert: The Highlights

UNSW’s Arc Philanthropic or Phil’ hosted a Charity Concert on Thursday night, which raised $4000 towards their $50,000 goal, for the Child Life and Music Therapy Department at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.

As with every success, there were some good and some amazing moments, so we’ve decided to recap the highlights.

NUTS, presenting The Addams Family

The Charity Concert got off to a splendid start with the NUTS cast of The Addams Family performing “When You’re an Addams”. With great harmonious singing, synchronised dancing and a perfect bit of humour, the UNSW Theatrical Society gave a great performance.

Tickets are now on sale for the musical which is showing this August.

More theatrical vocals

Speaking of NUTS, a few members also put on other enticing performances, which were a perfect mix of chilling vocals and theatrical wit.

Standing out in particular were Cameron Woodhouse performing ‘Ladies Who Lunch’ from ‘Company’ and “The Candymen” – Simeon Lion-Hyde Yialeloglou, Cameron Woodhouse and Billy-Joe Wilson – performing Candyman by Christina Aguilera.

Baked Goods Galore

A fun night of performances is all well and good, but the baked goods and popcorn really brought something extra (sugary goodness) to the night.

UNSW String Ensemble

The UNSW String Ensemble gave an amazing and passionate performance of Die Fledermaus Overture by Johann Strauss II.

Affordably priced tickets for their upcoming mid-year concert are on sale now.

Impromptu human music stand

Last but by no means least, a key highlight of the night was MC and impromptu human music stand, Arc’s very own Mitchell McBurnie, who stepped up to the task not once but twice, after a little music stand malfunction.

If you missed out on this concert, not to fear! Phil’ will be holding more awesome pop up events throughout semester 2, as well as a Fun-a-thon which you can register for now.

About Cheryl Till

Cheryl loves not knowing what to do, including what to write for this bio. She occupies her time with different hobbies, although she isn't entirely sure if reading and watching Netflix for hours on end as a form of procrastination count as hobbies. You can probably find Cheryl in a comfy chair somewhere, pretending to be productive.
